You shouldn’t participate in this event. The entrance cost is stupid, and if you lack gems and gold it costs almost double to compete in real world money to get the gems to play.
Also… we all know Standard isn’t great right now, so let’s make the first “everyone can play and earn real prizes” two days before the bans happen to hopefully make the game fun again.
That said… we make MTG Arena content over here, so I’ll spend the money so you don’t have to. And I’ll be the one to get aggravated at the game, so you don’t have to do that either. Let’s go! …I guess.
